Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain, has named Trimble Transportation to its 2017 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list.
Hundreds of top commercial and private carriers and logistics providers in the global food supply chain use transportation management software (TMS), final-mile routing, business intelligence and related solutions from Trimble Transportation. The comprehensive product platform enables companies to optimally plan and execute shipments, and to ensure quality, security and operational cost controls for their customers.
Trimble Transportation is currently developing a next-generation connectivity platform using a highly secure, distributed ledger technology known as Blockchain. The platform will bring people and business information systems together to create smart contracts using a highly visible and efficient process to pre-negotiate the various “blocks” of information to be exchanged in freight transactions.
The blocks are linked together with cryptography and can execute automatically, every step of the way, from RFP to payment using direct and unalterable real-time data connections with the transportation management and integrated software solutions from Trimble Transportation.
“We are honored that our broad portfolio of planning and execution systems has again been recognized by Food Logistics and look forward to leading the next evolution of technology for shippers and transportation providers in the global food supply chain,” said David Wangler, president of Trimble Transportation.
The annual FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list serves as a resource guide of software and technology providers whose products and services are critical for companies in the global food and beverage supply chain.
“New developments and innovations in the software and technology sector are making sizeable impacts on the global food supply chain,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director for Food Logistics and its sister publication, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The result is a greater visibility, improved regulatory compliance, enhanced shelf life for perishables, and the emergence of a more proactive and nimble food supply chain that benefits both the food industry and its logistics partners, as well as the end consumer.”
Companies on this year’s 2017 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list are profiled in the November/December 2017 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at http://www.foodlogistics.com.
